St. Andrew's Church, Letcombe Regis -  Nash Ford PublishingLetcombe Regis
St. Andrew's Church 

This 15th century building at Letcombe Regis has a massive 13th century tower. Internal treasures include remnants of 14th century stained glass, including a figure of Christ and some heraldic shields. Ashmole recorded a now lost figure of John Mermill with his hunting horn. An obelisk in the churchyard stands as a memorial to a Maori chief, George King Hipango, who died of tuberculosis at the vicarage whilst training to be a Christian missionary. He was only nineteen.
